Even in a time of significant State and local flexibility, the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) remains a statute with some challenging features. Two experienced U.S. Department of Education attorneys will help you diagnose key areas of potential concern and suggest possible treatments that afford flexibility in implementing the statute without causing stress or tension. If good legal advice, music, and laughter are the best medicine, this presentation will help you implement ESSA and cure all that ails you. And we make house calls.
